case study. Essentially all the power meters currently installed at the IADC, as well as the energy
management software package used, are Schneider Electric products. Thus, just about any Schneider
Electric power meter would have integrated into the existing IADC system, however, the Enercept
meter provided the data we needed (real energy and power) at the lowest hardware cost. The meters
automatically transmitted average power readings from each oven on 15 minute intervals over an
internal ethernet network which were timestamped and stored in a SQL Server database. The 15
minute interval time for averages was chosen to balance fidelity, storage, bandwidth, and smoothness
of the data.
Along with electricity data, we also incorporated operational data into the feedback. The source
'The mechanics assigned to this cell claimed that the pumps should not be turned off because the pumps have
problems starting after shutdowns. of the operational data was an electronic MRP system which tracked material, components, and
worker operations t...
